Someone asked me, months ago, if I knew of any tutorials for robes, or if I came up with any ideas to let her know. I have thought about it on and off for months. Hmm... that would take a lot of wool, and it wouldn't match... maybe patchwork... waist tie or button front? I pondered and pondered, but in the meantime, I had donated my fleece robe years ago, and realized that I will never need another. I don't need a robe, because I have my house sweaters, and perhaps, that's all she needs too! I pulled 2 super soft oversized cardigans from my stash a couple of years ago, and I wear them every day. I'm wearing one right now, and almost always am wearing one while i'm on the computer. On especially cold nights, I even sleep with them on. While they may not look the least bit attractive, they are house sweaters, and nobody ever sees them. Because they are wool, they never get stinky, like a robe can get if it's not washed often, and I never get that too hot, hot & cold, feeling that I get from fleece. So, I will probably never make a robe tutorial, because it's easier to just get yourself a house sweater!
